You can now view your Ricoh Theta V 360 photos and videos wirelessly in VR using a Playstation VR or Oculus Go. The new VR viewing capability was made possible with a new Theta V plugin called VR Media Connection. This will definitely come in handy for sharing your photos and videos quickly, but also useful for virtual tours. You can get the plugin here.
There are two ways to use the plugin: the AP mode or the Client mode. For the Oculus Go, you can use either mode, but for the Playstation VR, you will need to use the Client mode.
For AP mode, you simply connect your Oculus Go to the Theta V’s wireless signal the same way you would a wireless network. Remember that the default password is the serial number of the Theta V printed on its base, including the leading zeros. Once connected, activate the plugin by holding down the mode button for 2 seconds until the Theta’s LED light turns white. Your Theta V photos and videos will appear in the Oculus Go’s Gallery app.
For Client mode, the Theta V and the VR headset must be connected to the same wireless network, such as your home network. To connect the Theta V to a wireless network, use the Theta app. After both the Theta V and VR headset are connected to the network, activate the plugin by holding down the mode button for 2 seconds until the Theta’s LED light turns white. Your Theta V photos and videos will appear in the Playstation VR’s Media Player app, or the Oculus Go’s Gallery app, whichever you may be using.
